Yankee slugger Alex Rodriguez is playing hardball against wife Cynthia in their divorce case, saying he wants their prenuptial agreement enforced.

In court papers obtained by the New York Daily News, A-Rod's side responds point by point to the July 7 divorce filing by Cynthia Rodriguez.

Nose Picking By Alex Rodriguez

A-Rod admits the marriage is "irretrievably broken," but because Florida is a no-fault divorce state, he doesn't have to say why - and won't.

Claims that he "emotionally abandoned his wife and children" and that they broke up because of his "extramarital affairs and marital misconduct" are "immaterial and impertinent and should be stricken," Alex's court filing states.

This is in response to her petition to the court, in which Cynthia Rodriguez asked for the couple's $12 million estate and "equitable distribution" of all assets acquired during her six-year marriage to Alex Rodriguez.

While naming no figure, she petitioned for alimony and support, including benefits as life and health insurance and private schools - suggesting she be able to maintain the "high standard of living" A-Rod has provided.

A-Rod, whose 10-year, $275 million contract with the New York Yankees makes him baseball's highest-paid player, says he wants the prenup enforced. What the terms are is not known, but apparently they don't suit Cynthia.

It seems as though nary an episode of The Hills passes by without Lauren Conrad shedding a tear or getting into a cat fight.

"I know I look tortured," she says in the September issue of CosmoGIRL. "But, it's a TV show and you don't see all sides of people.

LC in Effect

"The Hills is a dramatic show about relationships. It's not about me being a designer. No one wants to see me working at the factory on my collection, or me and Lo [Bosworth] having a dance party in our pajamas."

Lauren Conrad says there are downfalls to living a public life.

"Can you imagine being 22 and having your parents know everything there is about you?" she laments. "Literally, my mom can go online and find out where I went last night, who I was with. I mean, there are no secrets!"

Lauren Conrad — who recently denied claims that she is not actively involved in her clothing line — is currently plotting out her fall wardrobe.

On her list? "Really rich colors like plum, dark green and black."

When two stars of popular new TV shows collide wearing the latest trends, it's a celebrity fashion clash for the ages. Or at least July 31.

The lovely Leighton Meester celebrated her Nylon cover in her Zac Posen dress - and provided yet another example of hip Gossip Girl fashion.

Meanwhile, Lipstick Jungle star Lindsay Price filmed a scene in the same slim-fitting sheath. Hot! It's no Lindsay Price nude, but what can you do ...



Who wore it best, Leighton Meester or Lindsay Price?

It's a celebrity fashion clash between a pair of The Hollywood Gossip's favorites. But of these SoCal cuties will ultimately prevail?

Rachel Bilson of The OC and The Last Kiss fame added chic accessories to a Riller & Fount T-shirt dress while shopping in New York City.

Meanwhile, Laguna Beach alumna and former Lauren Conrad rival Kristin Cavallari wore the same item - only one-sleeved - in L.A.

Presidential candidate John McCain has released a new ad comparing rival Barack Obama to Britney Spears and Paris Hilton and questioning his readiness to lead.

Yes, we're serious.

Yeesh

The aforementioned gossip mainstays appear in a brief montage as a narrator describes Barack Obama as "the biggest celebrity in the world."

The narrator then asks "Is he ready to lead?" and proceeds to list off a series of vague positions supposedly held by the Democratic Illinois Senator.

To us, it seems like your boilerplate Republican ad, criticizing the Democrats over taxes, foreign policy, etc. ... with random pics of Britney Spears for good measure.

In short, a vote for Obama is a vote for a girl who shaved her head, was hospitalized for after a psychotic episode, and who eschews pants at nightclubs. Nice!

What are your thoughts on this John McCain ad? We'd love to hear them. And for more from the colliding worlds of celebrity gossip and political news, check out the latest on John Edwards and Rielle Hunter!

Despite his ex-fiancée’s lies claims, The Bachelor star Matt Grant is definitely not cool with Shayne Lamas keeping their engagement ring.

“It wasn’t a ‘gift’ so much,” the British-born Grant says. “It’s not a TV or a handbag. It’s a symbol of a marriage that didn’t happen.”

Shayne Lamas recently said she planned to keep the 2.85-carat diamond ring “safe and clean and in a glass box — like a glass slipper.”

She claimed Matt Grant approved, adding, “He wants to come over and look at it.”

He says that conversation never happened.

“We never discussed this,” he says. “I never said it was cool to just keep it. If she said we spoke about it, then she just made that up. Sometimes she thinks she can say anything and that I’ll go along with it.”

Amazing to think these two never got married, isn't it?

Almost as soon as the final rose was presented, Grant and Lamas were dogged by rumors of infidelity. Specifically, Shayne was said to have been screwing Justin Weneger in Las Vegas. They split earlier this month.

Matt Grant says he doesn’t want the ring back, necessarily, but thinks Shayne Lamas should at least auction it off for charity.

“Let’s have something good come out of this,” he said of the $65,000 rock. “Why hold onto it? What’s the point?”

Some woman, who is obviously very normal and in touch with reality, says she has found Jesus hiding inside a bag of Cheetos.

Shockingly, it's not Britney Spears.

Her name is Kelly Ramey, and when she opened a snack-sized bag of Cheetos, she felt something very unusual and spiritual inside.

Most of her family and friends believe it looks like a mini sculpture of Jesus Christ. Ramey and her husband call it "Cheesus."

A local minister, meanwhile, does not see anything theologically special about the Cheeto, but thinks "some good could come from it."

Definitely. Feeding it to Jayden James, perhaps. You know Britney is reading this story and frickin' foaming at the mouth right now.

Behold, the object of Britney Spears sinful, wanton lust.

Holy crap, the earthquake that hit L.A. yesterday must have caused the hat Samantha Ronson always wears to mysteriously go missing!

Back in Los Angeles yesterday after spreading girl-on-girl love with Lindsay Lohan all over NYC, SamRo showed off her new haircut!

If you can call it that.

As celebrity hairstyles go, this one looks like a doozy ... pretty terrible and practically non-existent. What are your thoughts?

Refusing to call it quits despite being dissed by mainstream media, The National Enquirer has released more scandalous John Edwards allegations!

The celebrity gossip tabloid reports that Edwards' alleged mistress / baby-mama, Rielle Hunter (also known as Lisa Druck), will not say a word about their affair and love child because she's being paid to zip it - $15,000 a month!

The money is reportedly being funneled to Hunter by a colleague of John Edwards, the former U.S. Senator from North Carolina, 2004 Democratic Vice Presidential nominee (running with John Kerry) and 2008 presidential candidate.

This same man is also supposedly paying off John Edwards’ friend and aide, Andrew Young, who tried to take the heat off the ex-Senator when the story broke in December by claiming he fathered the baby of Rielle Hunter.

A campaign insider told the National Enquirer the following: “A super-rich pal – who was closely involved with the campaign finances – is helping John. It’s likely this man doesn’t know all the dirty details of John’s extramarital affair, but is acting out of loyalty and is not asking a lot of questions – just writing the checks.”

John Edwards has spoken only briefly (and awkwardly) in sort of denying the story.
